WRY CRIPS WAS A BIT DORMANT BETWEEN 2012 to 2017 UNTIL A PERFORMANCE WAS ORGANIZED, REHEARSED AND PRESENTED TO THE PUBLIC IN JUNE OF 2017.
BY LATE SUMMER OF 2017, THEATRICAL DIRECTOR MICHAELA GOLDHABER JOINED IN TO HELP DEVELOP AND DIRECT A PIECE CALLED, 'IRETONIA: A SCI FI FANTASY.'
FOUR YEARS IN THE MAKING, 'IRETONIA' WAS PERFORMED IN BERKELEY, CA. ON THE STAGE OF LIVE OAK THEATER OPENING ON FRIDAY AUGUST 18th TO A SMALL BUT APPRECIATIVE AUDIENCE.
PRESENTED BY 'T1 Presents', T1 Presents is an extension of TheatreFIRST that focuses on collaborative residencies. Learn more about all things TheatreFIRST does!
ON SATURDAY NIGHT AUGUST 19th, THE PERFORMANCE WAS VIDEOTAPED.
THE CLIPS RECORDED ARE IN THE PROCESS OF BEING EDITED AND WILL BE PUBLISHED SOON!
ANOTHER TWO PERFORMANCES WERE SET FOR FRIDAY AUGUST 25th and SATURDAY AUGUST 26th (SEE MARQUE BELOW) AND FOR ANYONE WHO WAS LOCAL & COULD MAKE IT, YOU EXPERIENCED SOMETHING VERY SPECIAL. LIVE OAK THEATER IS A WONDERFUL INTIMATE THEATRICAL PERFORMANCE SPACE THAT IS ONE OF THOSE HIDDEN GEMS OF THE EAST BAY!
